big-fat-bummer

I'm blogging this right now because I'm sad and I need to get it out somehow (why does that make us feel better I wonder?)

Anyways, my husband has to leave me and Anna and go to Costa Rica for three days & nights. His Panamanian visa is expiring and he is required to leave the country (Anna and I have until Nov.20th)

We all went to Costa Rica in April to renew our visas, and thought we wouldn't have to do it again. But unfortunately we still aren't able to apply for our missionary visas, and thus, we have to leave the country yet again.

So Eric will leave next week sometime on a midnight bus and be back 3 days later. I know it's not a long time, but I hate being without him, and I hate being alone and I have a very hard time sleeping when he's not here.

I keep telling myself that, not only is my God a big God who will of course protect us within His will, but there are thick iron bars on every window and door of our house... that's got to be helpful, right?

Still, I'm sad and a little fearful (okay a lot). And now I want to eat cookies.

Ohh I feel your pain, literally. I just ate three cookies in anticipation of my husband leaving for the Big Rock for a week, tomorrow. And now I have heartburn. Not the best thing to do at 11pm. ;(

Cookies are totally acceptable but I suggest them when he leaves...right now snuggle up as much as possible!
